Summer Day Camp

At YMCA Southcoast, we believe camping is about having fun and developing skills while offering opportunities that allow children to grow to their fullest potential. We develop character at camp by teaching and demonstrating our core values of honesty, respect, caring and responsibility to our campers. Our summer day camps provide your child(ren) with multiple opportunities to learn new skills, develop confidence and character, and make lifelong friends.

YMCA Southcoast has been a leading provider of quality day camp programs for over 50 years. We pride ourselves on the quality of our highly qualified and well-trained camp staff. Our day camp directors have a combined total of over 26 years of camp leadership experience. Our counselors and program specialists are chosen based on their maturity and proven ability to be positive role models for your child(ren). They all possess a sincere desire to work with children.

We’re here to help you in selecting the right camp for your child(ren). We welcome you to visit our many day camp sites and talk with camp directors and staff. Our camps also allow you the sense of security that comes with knowing that while you are hard at work, your child is spending their summer days under the watchful and nurturing eyes of our dedicated camp staff.
